A-a-ron was our server and recommended the Pandora's box which was amazing. We like it so much we went and got the Mr Pestato head for take out for dinner later. Would have like some meat options but appreciated being warned the meat was not gluten free.

We at here on a BUSY Spring Break night. Our bartender/server was very professional and knowledgeable. We sat at the end of the bar by the kitchen and I got nervous when I saw the small kitchen space. However- my pizza did not come out of the same over the other pizzas did (we could see the whole area from the bar) An employee brought my pizza out and used a separate tong from a clean drawer to move it to a tin plate. The other pizzas were slid right onto plates on the counter with a pizza slide. My pizza was cut on a different counter and brought to me by the bartender who did not take the plate at all. She used a pair of tongs. Both my son and I have celiac and did not have a reaction. My son had Canadian bacon on the Gf Crust. He tried ordering sausage and was immediately told that topping is not GF. I had the Mont Blanc pizza. It was a thick GF crust with tons of topping. So filling I could only eat 2 slices. Luckily we had a refrigerator and microwave in our hotel suite. Definitely recommend. I have to say- the bartender, Abby, was more than competent and knowledgeable. I am not sure if our experience would have been the same with other staff.

While others have said this restaurant is Celiac safe, be very cautious with that recommendation. While I do believe staff try to avoid cross contamination, their kitchen and oven are entirely too small to really protect against it when they are busy. My husband was ill after eating here. It was mild enough that it was definitely cross contamination and not gluten in any of the actual ingredients. They are far too busy at dinnertime with food flying everywhere and finished items hitting the same counter space that isn't wiped down, so cross contamination is extremely likely. We won't be going back because we just can't risk it, which makes us sad because the food is good. If you do go, we highly recommend going at a slow time of day to ensure they can take every necessary precaution to protect your food.

There are signs in the restaurant saying they offer gluten free/vegan foods. Menu shows gluten free pizza crust and that was it. The waitress did say they use a separate area. The pizza was gf and I even had vegan daiya cheese with pepperoni! It was absolutely delicious!! I recommend 100% just reassure they know you have the allergy.

We ate here twice on our vacation. The first visit the server was very confident in their gf pizza and on the second visit a different server implied that they were not celiac safe. However, I felt fine after both visits.

Both the regular and GF pizzas were yummy. The GF pizza/toppings were prepared in a separate area. They also offer a non-dairy “cheese” topping. I mentioned that my daughter has celiac so they used a special tray in the oven. She loved the GF pizza and we loved the regular pizza.

Their GF crust is also vegan (dairy and egg free). The crust comes in 8” or 12” only. Very creative speciality pizzas. GF prepared in separate area, but is cooked in a shared oven. It was good, crust had a nice crisp to it, but it was $17 for a 12” plain cheese. Also parking at Clearwater Beach is very difficult. We lucked out with a free street spot not too far away, but one of the lots we tried before that wanted $25 just to park.

Really good pizza! I watched the pizza come out of the oven on a tray, picked up with a separate metal pizza paddle stored up on a higher shelf, and they used a separate red handled pizza cutter. I was there when it was pretty busy and I still would be 99.5% confident it’s celiac safe (I don’t give 100% to anywhere that has gluten in the same room). I wasn’t thrilled my plate sat next to other glutenous people’s on finished station. Wish they put it up on a shelf while waiting for the rest of the order or brought it right out. Still I usually don’t get to watch this closely and I was still very confident I wouldn’t get sick. Got the screaming tomato with sauce and glaze it was really tasty. A little soggy but that happens with tomato and fresh mozzarella. Not an udi’s crust. A little thicker than that but still a thin crust. I’d go back! Easy, safe, and tasty!

All pizza can be made GF. Very yummy. Separate GF prep area, but cooked in the same oven on a separate tray. We had no issues and it was yummy! Waitress was knowledgeable and helped us choose GF toppings. (No sausage)

While vacationing from Boston on Clearwater beach we were in search of a pizza place with gluten free options due to severe food allergies. We ended up finding this gem of a place right across from the Hilton on the beach. The owner Jeanette and our waitress Ariana were lovely and gave us top notch service going above and beyond to make sure i was comfortable and my food was safe for me to eat and not cross contaminated. The price was right everything was delicious and super fresh! Their many had a lot of options and we loved it so much we went two days in a row! We will definitely be back on our next trip!

Saw the place here, when we arrived the menu mentioned the gluten free crust multiple times so we were very excited. Tried to order it and they said they were sold out. Strange for something advertised so prominently. waitress also forgot another whole pizza. I ran out to get my daughter some gluten free food and bring it back so she wouldn't feel left out and could eat with us.

Called to make sure they actually served gluten free and the manager assured me I would not get sick& they had a separate preparation area. Get there only for him to say it would be a risk for me to eat it since they only wipe down the counters. At least they paid for our drinks.

Excellent pizza. I've lived in DC, San Diego and Vegas- and this is the best gf crust I've ever had. Zero stomachache from the pizza. Win!

Not sure if safe for celiacs, but safe for people with wheat allergies.

They also have Omission beer. If you can have that, all the better.

I came here and I am usually worried whenever ordering gluten free pizza from a place that is not dedicated. But other than a little gassy from eating pizza, I didn’t get sick at all. I felt absolutely fine afterwards. And yes, I gladly ate a whole medium pizza to myself. The gluten-free crust wasn’t the best, but you definitely get what you get when wanting to eat gluten free. Am I right? The toppings are we definitely made the pizza.

Tonight I walked in the restaurant after seeing such awesome reviews and spoke with the manager who kindly explained how they take all the right precautions to prevent CC. Feeling comfortable, I ordered the Pandora’s Box and then told the waitress I had Celiac. When the pizza was brought out, I tested it with my Nima which came back gluten found. Of course, there is always a risk when ordering out, ESPECIALLY with pizza due to the ovens, airborne flour, etc.. but it was the attitude of the company that left a bad taste in my mouth. The manager came back out and I could tell she was already annoyed. She basically said that the kitchen took all the precautions and started speaking over me when I politely tried to give input as to maybe what could be causing this (I mentioned spice blends in tomato sauce, cheese bin that’s shared between gluten and GF pizzas, etc), she continued to cut me off, ignore my questions and insisted that they had done everything 100% right and that ‘everyone else that had come in with Celiac was very happy with their meal’.. I said that I really did appreciate their efforts but even with precautions taken, sometimes these things unfortunately happen. We all know that even the best of restaurants can have off nights... She then cut me off again to ask if I wanted to eat the pizza and when I said no, she took the pizza and walked away. We were stunned. All we hoped for was an apology, but we never even offered an one. Off night or not, there is no excuse to be blatantly rude to a customer. Especially about something so serious. Be cautious when eating here!

Not enough precautions taken to be truly gluten free pizza even though crust is GF. Separate pan is used but not enough. Employees are not knowledgeable about cross contamination or what celiac disease is.
